Gallup: More See Dems As Too Liberal

From Gallup:

More Americans See Democratic Party as “Too Liberal”

More believe Democratic Party’s, rather than Republican Party’s, views are about right

PRINCETON, NJ — A Gallup Poll finds a statistically significant increase since last year in the percentage of Americans who describe the Democratic Party’s views as being "too liberal," from 39% to 46%. This is the largest percentage saying so since November 1994, after the party’s losses in that year’s midterm elections

Notably, there has been no change over the past year in the percentage of Americans who say the Republican Party is "too conservative," though the 43% who say the party leans too far to the right matches the historical high mark set last year.

As a result, now slightly more Americans perceive the Democratic Party as being too liberal (46%) than view the GOP as being too conservative (43%).

But the Democratic Party still compares favorably to the Republican Party from the standpoint that more Americans say the Democrats’ ideology is "about right" (42%) than say this about the Republicans’ ideology (34%)…

One should hope that our fellow citizens would have begun to catch on by now.

And yet:

But the Democratic Party still compares favorably to the Republican Party from the standpoint that more Americans say the Democrats’ ideology is "about right" …

Perhaps this too will change.

Despite our one party media and Democrat controlled ‘establishment.’

But propaganda go only do so much in the face of hard reality.

    You gotta wonder who the 8% who think Dems are too liberal.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      I’m more inclined to wonder why only 8% would think they are too liberal.
      Are we witnessing that the “Slumber Party” is over?
      GOD ………I HOPE SO!!

    • Right of the People says:

      Not to nitpick but I think you meant too conservative. That 8% would be the member of the CPUSA.

      Not to nitpick but I think you meant too conservative. That 8% would be the faculty of our insitutions of higher learning.

      FIFY :)

      My colleagues have forwarded me emails from MoveOn (apparently they think I would respect such a source!) THe latest MoveOn missive complains that the Democrats had to make too many compromises with the Repubs on cap & trade, and that’s why the bill –according to them — doesn’t go far enough & lets corporations off easy. The Moveon folks think the Democratic Party is too conservative. They are, I guess, that 8%.

    I can’t imagine that this is actually in print – I wonder what it was that woke up some in the ‘knowledge loop’ are beginning to see what we have seen for a long, long time.

    I read something along this line in the Rasmusen page. I didn’t mention it because it was dated early in June.

    But it does look like there is a bit of stirring in the ol’ cave. Perhaps spring is arriving. Pray!
